The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield welcomes Bo Sullivan to work as Chief Advancement Officer of the organization, effective in March.
Bo is currently the Executive Director of the Irish Cultural Center of Western New England. He is a well-known professional in the area, serving on the Westfield School Committee and spending several years at Westfield State University in the Advancement office. He is also a former long-time morning show radio host at WHYN 560 AM.
ICC Board President Sean Cahillane, along with the rest of the Board and staff, wish Bo all the best, thanking him for his professional service, dedication and many accomplishments during his time with the ICC.
“Our loss is their gain. We at the ICC have no doubt he will be an asset in his new role,” Cahillane said.
Westfield Boys & Girls Club Chief Executive Officer William Parks said he looks forward to working with Bo. “Bo has been a long-time volunteer for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield. I have worked very closely with him to raise millions of dollars for our annual budget and our last capital campaign. I look forward to having him join our organization’s administrative staff,” he said.
Sullivan agreed, adding that he is excited for the opportunity to help enhance and grow the organization.
“I am pleased and thankful to be helping to develop and continue the fine mission and tradition of the Westfield Boys & Girls Club. I have been involved with the Club for almost 20 years and know what an exciting and outstanding organization it is.” Sullivan said. “I will miss my work with the Irish Center. The people I met and the work that is being done there is truly amazing. My experiences there have taught me so much. I will continue to maintain the strong ties I have made, I will be no stranger to the ICC.”
In his new duties at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield, Sullivan will work with Chief Executive Officer and Board to develop and steward donors, and grow and sustain funding streams. He will oversee development including grants and marketing.
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield is a non-profit, charitable organization that seeks to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
